Modular units help you make the most of the available space, and give you plenty of storage with a minimal footprint. The same is true for kitchens as well. Designed as standardised components, each unit is made to fit together to create a whole, functional kitchen. In fact, because the units are pre-built, modular kitchens tend to be more cost effective than custom built kitchens. Plus, since our kitchens use standardised measurements, cabinets can be changed, upgraded, or replaced without having to redo the whole kitchen.
Of course. Our semi-designed kitchen units are designed to suit kitchens with pre-installed countertops. While we recommend asking your builder to not install a countertop (since it’s easier to work with a completely empty space), we can also work around pre-installed countertops to design a kitchen that’s just right for you.
Unfortunately not. All our modular kitchen units and accessories are only available to customers who choose to have their entire kitchen built by Urban Ladder. We currently do not sell units piecemeal.
While we do not undertake any major civil work, we can create a new kitchen for you around an existing countertop or slab, or once your existing kitchen has been dismantled. Please note, we currently do not dismantle existing kitchens.
Most kitchens have an exhaust fan. You would have noticed grime deposits on the fan blades and the walls of the kitchen. This happens because the air has to travel up to the exhaust fan. Before it reaches the fan, the oil, smoke, vapours etc. get deposited on the surface they come in touch with. Further, the fans are so far from the hob, the vapours spread into the house, making it smell like your dinner! To ensure quick expulsion of these materials from the kitchen, the chimney is placed right above the hob/stove. From here all the dust, grime etc. is sucked and thrown out of the kitchen by powerful blowers of the chimney. Not only do chimneys ensure a cleaner breathing environment in your kitchen, they are quite functional with built-in lights etc. Plus they are designed in a way that they only add to the beauty of your kitchen.
You can choose to go solo or mix and match these to bring out the best in your kitchen. Many shutter options are available for your kitchen, such as matt laminated (on mdf or ply), glossy laminated (on mdf or ply), PU painted and lacquered (on mdf), acrylic ( on ply or mdf). Wide range of aluminium profile plain or back painted glass shutters are available for a sleeker look. Additionally, there are rolling shutters in PVC or glass for easy access and added aesthetic value.
When you’ve made your kitchen with so much care and concern, taking care of it in a certain manner will help it last long. This is what you can do: Regularly clean the cabinets and drawers with a soft cloth. The units and drawers would be made of wood or similar material, so do not use water to clean them Do not keep harsh chemicals and detergents in your cleaning kit.
They can spoil the design and the finishing of the worktops. It is advisable to use mild cleaning agents to preserve the colours and design of the kitchen It is a good practice to keep the drawers and cabinets of the kitchen closed while cooking.
If something does fall into them, clean them immediately Use a dry cloth to wipe any water that may have spilled out of the sink. Ensure the plumbing does not get blocked due to garbage – dispose small food particles properly Operate your drawers and doors gently, do not bang them shut to ensure longevity.
If you observe any abnormal sound or restricted movement, call the dealer immediately Use a soft cloth and a mild cleanser instead of sharp objects like knives and scrubs to clean the surfaces
